What is an OTG (On The Go) cable?

Last Update date : 2017.11.03

An OTG or On-The-Go cable allows you to connect a full sized USB device or cable to your Galaxy Smartphone through the micro USB charging port.


It allows USB devices such as digital audio players or mobile phones to act as a host.


You can do the following with an OTG cable:



● Plug in keyboards and mouse to the mobile.                                  

● Access data USB sticks and External Hard Drives.                           

● Transfer photos directly from a compatible camera on to the phone.


Note: Due to the power limitations, accessibility to External Hard Drives may not be applicable with your device.
